Packers 23, Giants 16

Packers hang on

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdownss in an otherwise choppy night for the Green Bay offense, and the Packers' defense rattled the Giants and limited Odell Beckham Jr. Sunday.

Rodgers was 23 of 45 for 259 yards and two interceptions. Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams each had highlight-reel touchdown catches to help the Packers build an 11-point halftime lead. But the offense was mired by uncharacteristic drops, and couple of big plays were called back by penalties. Mason Crosby kicked three field goals, including two in the fourth quarter.

New York's Eli Manning was 18 of 35 for 199 yards, and the Packers pressured him much of the night. The Giants looked out of sorts until a hurry-up drive that ended with Beckham's 8-yard touchdown catch with 2:54 left.

Beckahm's first touchdown catch of the season stood on replay review after the receiver jumped high for Manning's pass and was ruled inbounds after straddling the back line of the end zone. Beckham raised both arms in celebration after watching the replay on the video board. He then hugged the kicking net — a nod to an incident a couple of weeks ago when he hit a net on the sidelines in frustration and the net snapped back and hit him.

He finished with five catches for 56 yards.
